JUPITER Global Holdings, Corp. Sets Record Date for All JUPITER Shareholders of Record as of Close of Business Wednesday May 10, 2006 for Potential Stock Dividend From Potential Spin-Off of Its

Entertainment Interests

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 4, 2006 -- JUPITER Global Holdings, Corp. ("JUPITER" or the "Company") (OTC: JPHC) today announces that all JUPITER shareholders of record at the close of business Wednesday, May 10, 2006, Eastern Daylight Time (the "Record Date") will be on record to receive a stock dividend in the potential spin-off of JUPITER's entertainment interests, should the directors determine to actually declare the dividend.

The JUPITER board of directors has previously announced plans to spin-off its entertainment interests ("Plan") to its shareholders. The Plan began to take shape shortly after board approval and as part of the Plan, the board's intention is that within the process of executing the spin-off, a stock dividend may be declared to its shareholders of record. The Company believes a transaction that would result in the spin-off of its entertainment interests and subsequent stock dividend would be very beneficial to its shareholders. The previously announced merger transaction with APO Health, Inc. that the Company is now involved in ("Merger Transaction") impacts the viability of the Plan.

Management at this time feels that if a spin-off is approved by the board of directors in the future, the board prefers to ensure that the subsequent stock dividend is beneficial to its current shareholders. With this in mind, JUPITER management felt that setting a Record Date prior to closing of the Merger Transaction would be a key step in keeping that aforementioned benefit available to its current shareholders.

Although Management is encouraged at this stage of the Plan, no assurances can be given that a spin-off and subsequent stock dividend will be completed and approved post-closing of the Merger Transaction. In addition, management wishes to notify its shareholder that if the potential spin-off and subsequent stock dividend occurs, there is no specific timeline for the stock dividend to be executed and actually delivered to shareholders as of the Record Date.

Any additional information and instructions about the potential spin-off will be provided when determined and available.

Ray Hawkins, CEO of JUPITER, commented: "We are pleased to be able to announce the Record Date for a potential spin-off and subsequent potential stock dividend. We wish we were able to be more definite at this time but we feel that taking a snap shot of our shareholder base before the closing of the Merger Transaction is the best way for us to preserve a potential stock dividend for JUPITER shareholders."
